I reared dig­i­tal moon­light You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black Kis­metly … ubiq­ui­tously crest­fallen Thrown down to strafe your foothills … I’ll suck the bones pretty. Your na­ture per­fo­rated the abra­sive or­gan pumps Spray painted ev­ery­thing known to man, Stream rushed through and all out into ed­u­ca­tion. ‘The big­gest strug­gle I’ve ever had has been about not go­ing to school and work­ing in­stead. I was wor­ried about turn­ing down spe­cific in­di­vid­ual ex­pe­ri­ences. Like each movie was, "F***, I have to do that movie." I just did a movie with Tim Blake Nel­son [the re­cently wrapped Anes­the­sia] and he is bril­liant. I play this char­ac­ter who is get­ting her Mas­ter’s de­gree in phi­los­o­phy at Columbia [Univer­sity], and I think I’m smart, but I’m def­i­nitely not book smart in that way.’

Only in the past year has Ste­wart be­come con­fi­dent that, even if she doesn’t work for a year, she won’t be for­got­ten or feel that she does me­dia to pro­mote her projects. ‘I’m just not very good on TV, and it’s not my main goal in life to get good at it. People are like, “She just can’t han­dle” – for lack of a bet­ter word –“the spot­light.” No, ac­tu­ally, I can’t, and that is to­tally who I am. I love be­ing an ac­tor, but I’m the last per­son to want to have a birth­day party. I don’t try to force it … or fab­ri­cate this per­son­al­ity … so I to­tally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awk­ward per­son.’ Ste­wart has rec­on­ciled that with her de­sire to be true to her po­etic self. ‘If you’re op­er­at­ing from a gen­uine place, you can’t re­ally re­gret any­thing.’
